No, im certainly NOT poking fun at our most recent natural disaster or those affected by it. My family just so happened to be some of the unfortunate ones who had to leave our home for the monster that was hurricane Irma. It has been nothing less than stressful, anxiety ridden, and over all exhausting.
Like many others it took us almost twenty hours to leave the state of Florida to reach our destination in Georgia. There were a number of places that were OUT of gas. Tons of people abandoning their cars not he side of the interstate because they simply couldn't go any further. It was just a mess and thats putting it lightly. As I was preparing to write a blog for this week I realized that just like this unfortunate natural disaster that so many had to manage their way through our businesses sometimes go through similar situations. I apologize I am almost two days late on sharing with you all but i’ve been a bit busy,
As mompreneurs our first priority is to our children and our families. However, we also run some kick butt businesses that need our focus too. Sometimes we are all in, full force, with every aspect of the mompreneur life. But other times we are drowning in the mom life and it doesn't seem like we’ll survive to ever get back to our businesses. We run out of energy, we run out of time, we run out ooomph to manage through the tough times. It’s hard, truly truly hard sometimes to manage through. But at the end of the day we are strong and can preserver through any obstacle.
Sometimes there are unforeseen things that happen but that doesn't mean you have to throw in the towel. When you feel like your business is struggling through its own natural disaster take a deep breath, step back, evaluate the damage, and plan for repairs.
You might need to re-engage with your audience, you might need to check into your online office, maybe you need to catch up with your emails, no matter what it is, break it down into pieces and create a plan of action based on your needs. Little bits at a time you can be back up and running in no time.
For anyone who was affected my heart goes out to you. If you need anything please feel free to leave a comment and I can try and help in any way I can.
Until Next Time Mommas,
